The search for accommodation, whether in university residences of the University of Porto or in private accommodation is up to the student. Here we identify some entities that offer accommodation in Porto specifically for higher education students. The School only intends to facilitate the access of its students to this information, not assuming any responsibility arising from any contacts that its students may have with these entities.
The University of Porto has 9 university residences for the accommodation of its students, with priority being given to scholarship holders covered by the Scholarship System who, due to distance or difficulty of transport, cannot reside with the family during the school year.
Applications are made after enrolment, through the U.Porto Social Action Services
Scholarships are granted in accordance with the Rules for the Awarding of Scholarships to Students in Higher Education.
AAAFEP, in the framework of its partnership with FEP, AEFEP and SASUP, has launched a Solidarity Programme which aims to financially support underprivileged students of the Economics or Business Administration Degrees of FEP. This support consists of an annual subsidy equal to the amount of the approved tuition fee for the respective school year.

Gulbenkian Mérito Scolarships
The Gulbenkian Mérito Scolarships are designed to support young people with high potential who are applying to higher education for the first time and who have scarce economic resources. The scholarship is worth €2000 per academic year and includes a one-off additional support for a period of international mobility, Erasmus or other similar programme offered by each educational institution, worth €2000.
It looks like any other card, but it is much more than that. Made possible through a partnership with Bank Santander Totta, Cartão U.Porto is an ID card for any member of the academic community of the University of Porto (students, teachers and administrative staff). It allows privileged access to an extensive range of University of Porto services and those of partner institutions.
